Where are you vacationing this year??

  1. Next weekend we're going to Chicago. (it was supposed to be Toronto but we cancelled b/c of SARS/my g.f.'s O.B. Dr. didn't want her going there since she's preggo)

    During the summer we're heading to Upnorth MI Our kids love swimming and I love relaxing.

    Next year we're heading to Disney World. My eldest son is very excited about that. (he's 4 y/o)

    We are going to Montana to visit my fam. I want to move back! I am tired of the wind and dust here in Lubbock.

    Well, I don't get a vacation this year. We are moving to Illinois (North of Chicago) in June, so that's it for me.

    Hoping to go to Mazatlan in February 2004 though...

    Taking a mini-vacation the last day of this month... flying to Tucson for a full week of fun and silliness with my favorite sis..(and only sibling, so she's the "favorite" !)
    No hubby this time, no mom, just us.. to do as we please, when we please, and just have FUN !
    Haven't been together like this since we were kids. Will be a lot of reminescing, rolling on the floor laughing our arses off at some of the stuff we pulled when we were little...swimmming in her pool at midnite if we take a notion (or have had one too many), going camping on Mt. Lemmon a coulple days, and to top it all, I'll be pampered and treated like a princess ! (This is her gift to me for my RN graduation last Dec., but she thought this tiome of year would be more fun, so we delayed it a little, so we could enjoy the pool, cookouts, and tiki-torches!)
    Yep, she's warned the neighbors already... ... expect to hear music blasting in the wee hours of the morning as the two idiots next door splash about in the pool with their rubber duckies and make total fools of themselves !

    Yep.. she'll be bringing me creamed yogurt topped with fresh berries and just-picked flowers from her patiobeds on a breakfast tray to my room in the mornings... cookouts in the evening next to the pool, I won't have to lift a finger 'cuz I'm the "princess" that week and we'll have fun, fun, fun and no daddy to take the T-Bird away !!!

    AND... I'll get to see my son as well ! He moved out to Tucson last fall, so I get to see his apt., and spend a little special time with him as well ! This is going to be soooooooo great ! Can't wait !

    Here's sis Pati and my "baby" Adam :

    Thanx ! He IS a sweetie ! (all 6 feet, 6inches of him !)

    I hear ya about the soothing rythmic sound of the ocean... my next favorit place besides the mountains. I kind of "hear" the same effect with the smooth, rolling hills here...

    If I sit on my front step I can get a very similar feeling from the little brook that rund through my back yard, so happy and bubbly......makes you forget your troubles....but I also understandhow the rolling hills can give that very same effect....just like the softly slopping mtns of the Catskills.......

    All 6' of your baby huh?? My 15 yr old baby (oh he would cringe and complain if he saw that...hehehehe) has 2" inches on him and I think he has another growth spurt coming on as he is starting to eat me out of house and home again for the upteenth time!! :roll :roll

    One of these days I'll get around to post a pic of the little darling.....lolMay you have an absolute blast when you go!!!

    No !
    You MISSED the 6 inches (probably SEVEN inches now..) on top of his 6 feet ! Yeh. Really. And a size 14 shoe. Skinny as a beanpole, like his momma.

    I've been to the Catskills many a time.. lived up in Ct. for ten years (had a bubbling brook in our backyard there, too.. and a little pond and ducks..)) before moving down here to the Blue Ridge area. Loved your area, too !
    The mountains and the ocean DO have much in common... even though they are so vastly different... in the "feel" of each.

    OMGosh!!!! I guess I did miss that 6inches :chuckle Ray has a size 12 and is very proud of the fact that he can rest his arm on him momma's head and is towering over his Dad CT you say??? small world after all??? Anywhere near Danbury or New Fairfield???? I feel like I found family now I hear the Blue Ridge Mtns are absolutely stunning....drop me an email sometime and we can chat if you like.

    Yeh.. ever hear of Middlebury? near Woodbury and right outside of Waterbury? I worked in Southbury (geeeeesh, that's a lot of "bury"s , eh?) for several years at the State Training School for the Menatally Handicapped.. then EMS 911 Senior Dispatcher in Waterbury for seven years... back in the seventies. Moved down here in '82. But lived in Middlebury up there. (yep, between Danbury and Waterbury!)

    Yes.. it IS beautiful here !!!

    pm me sometime !
